The Power Behind Positive Birth Affirmations

Have you heard about Positive Birth Affirmations?

Simply put, Birth Affirmations are statements about you and your upcoming birth that are framed in a wholly positive light. They are simple yet extremely effective.  By repeating positive statements to yourself you confirm their truth to your subconscious mind. This can have a profound effect on your emotions and thoughts surrounding birth.

Positive birth affirmations work on the same principles as hypnosis.  Your brain can only store so much information, so by repeating positive thoughts and affirmations, negative ones slowly begin getting pushed aside.  Many studies suggest that women who used positive birth affirmations experienced a more natural and stress free labour and delivery.


Here are a few of my favourite birth affirmations:

My surges cannot be stronger than me because they are me.

I grew this baby, I can birth this baby.

My mind is relaxed, my body is relaxed.

Each surge brings my baby closer to me.

I am prepared for any turn my birth takes.
